          I ordered the Simpson strong tie, kwb1 kit; and boy am I one happy camper. The product was easy to order, arrived in a few days, Home Depot called and they told me where to pick it up. The cost was excellent. I bought premium wood and I was off. A few days later, I built my work bench, easily following the included directions. I also watched the YouTube video Simpson strong tie produced. I built my work bench with my own hands. It will last many years. It is very sturdy, solid, and well developed. Thank you Simpson Strong Tie for the product and especially my Home Depot, for being so helpful, nice, professional, and ready to help if need be. 5 star treatment and exceptional qualityRead More

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The product was not expired. But it poured like molasses. And if you know about fiber glass resins, or glassing, molasses resin does not do it. It was difficult to saturate the fabric. And it just didn't work out too well.

          Can Strong-Tie #10 x 1.5 in. Connector Screws be used instead of the included ones?

          Answer: 
          4x4s is a little over kill and would not fit in the brackets. As is, its very solid and durable. You would be very happy with the results
